The Second Tiberium War is a free mod expansion pack for Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. Since the original game is freeware, the modder decided to not only give it a complete overhaul but also add to the story as an extension to the campaign. Similar strategy game mods and games include RA3 Epic War Mod and Warzone 2100.
Besides continuing from where the Tiberian Sun ended, Second Tiberium War introduced new units and gameplay mechanics. The graphics also have a stunning new update, while you’ll hear crisper sound. The development has added new decorations to maps to make them more appealing.
The Tiberium War continues
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun ended where the GDI defeated The Brotherhood of NOD at the battle of Sarajevo, and they believed that its leader Kane had died in the final fight. Years later, there was still peace on the Tiberium-infested planet until terrorists attacked and kidnapped someone’s daughter. The scorpion tale symbol of NOD was on their uniforms.
With the United Nations in power, rogue groups are appearing and causing skirmishes in select countries. Tiberium is spreading, causing more mutations among the people. Among these problems, new rumours emerge that Kane is alive and getting ready for a second Tiberian war.
New units, buildings and mechanics
The mod wouldn’t be an excellent extension to the first game if it just reused the units and buildings. The Second Tiberium War introduces new fighters, specifically aircraft and ships. While there are few new facilities, the ones brought over have new appearances and a few new abilities. For example, the Power Plant has been upgraded to supply more power.
Decorations and vegetation
The maps in Second Tiberium War have new decorations and vegetation, providing a different atmosphere and matching the latest period in the game. Lighting and shadows are improved, so you‘ll enjoy an enhanced visual experience.
For the love of Tiberian Sun
The Second Tiberium War mod is ideal for players who loved the 1999 game, Tiberian Sun, and want more action and story. The developer went the extra mile to do more than refurbish the original title.
For the most part, you’ll enjoy new units, action sequences and map decorations. However, the real treat is the additional story that continues where the first ended.
